The Personal Stress Assessment Inventory (PSAI) helps participants analyze and understand all the factors that may cause high and potentially dysfunctional stress levels.
Participants will identify their
- predisposition (ways of looking at life’s events)
- resilience (ability to bounce back or take care of themselves)
- potential sources of stress (both work and non-work)
- health symptoms
- overall stress factor.
The scoring focuses on both “burn-out” and the possibility of “rust-out”.
There is a built-in honesty check based on the social desirability scale designed by Crowne and Marlowe.
The Facilitator Guide contains a suggested design for 2 sessions totaling 6 hours.
It also provides detailed administration, analysis, and debriefing guidelines for the PSAI and Participant Workbook. Furthermore, it gives background information on the PSAI conceptual model and illustrates a number of stress management strategies and techniques such as Autogenic Training.
The Participant Workbook supports the stress management workshop outlined in the Facilitator Guide. It includes interactive materials, a relevant case-study, and action plan guidelines.
